Bella Thorne opened up about her past sexual abuse yesterday.
The 20-year-old former star of the Disney Channel series “Shake It Up” tweeted a response to a person's comment and confirmed that she was molested as a child. She also noted that Disney had nothing to do with it.
Bella wrote on Instagram yesterday, "I was sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can remember till I was 14...when I finally had the courage to lock my door at night and sit by it. All damn night. Waiting for someone to take advantage of my life again."
She said, "Over and over I waited for it to stop and finally it did. But some of us aren't as lucky to get out alive. Please today stand up for every soul Mistreated. #timesup"
Bella made her comments hours before dozens of stars wore black on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes to show their support behind the Time's Up campaign to fight sexual misconduct.
